Yellow Warbler (Dendroica petechia)

Yellow Warbler

Although similar to the goldfinch, this warbler lacks the black wings and tail.   Its cheerful, bright call can be heard by urban dwellers from willows, small trees, and shrubs growing on wet grounds and in residential areas that contain an open growth of small ornamental trees.

A tropic winterer, he breeds from the tree limit in Canada to the southern states.   When plagued by cowbirds laying eggs in its nest, this warbler builds a second nest on tip of the first, completely covering the cowbird's eggs, and any of its own in the bottom layer.
